TVA has announced its seasonal campgrounds will open March 15 for this year’s recreational season.
TVA said it operates more than 80 public recreational areas, which includes campgrounds and boat ramps. The campgrounds it manages hosted more than 61,000 overnight stays last year.
The 2013 season for most of the campgrounds will run through Nov. 18, though Douglas Dam and Pickwick Dam tailwater campgrounds will stay open through Dec. 16, a news release said.
Among the campgrounds opening March 15 will be Foster Falls in this area.
TVA said it will no longer manage Barton Springs campground on Normandy Reservoir near Manchester, Tenn., or Mallard Creek campground on Wheeler Reservoir in Hillsboro, Ala. It said they will probably open in early May with a commercial operator. Loyston Point campground on Norris Reservoir near Andersonville, Tenn., has been under management by a commercial operator since 2011.
